The City of Paramount has created an Environmental Portal on the internet, a website providing facts and information to residents and businesses about our City's environment.
The site, which will be evolving as far as presentation and data, focuses on the areas of air and water. The City seeks a balance of residential, commercial, and industrial opportunities; however, in all cases, a clean and safe environment must come first. Please visit at paramountenvironment.org.
A line up of Paramount productions - from the city, not the movie studio - is now on the video-streaming website YouTube. Shows highlight such things as public presentations at City Council meetings, special community events, an oral history of the our town, and other Paramount profiles.
